Anyone Know About Pre-Paying Tax?

There's been a bunch of publicity about some states allowing property owners to pre-pay some or all of their 2018 property tax before the close of 2017 as a work-around of the new federal limit on "SALT" deductions.  Anyone know if Vermont allows this?  Guess one could phone the appropriate agency, but of course I thought of this after hours!  Can find nothing on the Vt tax dept website or anywhere else online about this.  Thanks, & HNY.

Pellet Stove Replacement Program

Green Mountain Home Repair, a program of the Windham & Windsor Housing Trust, is pleased to announce a pellet stove replacement program for Windham County residents. Eligible homeowners will get a price reduction of $2,000 to $4,000 on the cost of purchasing and installing an approved pellet stove to replace an old wood stove, or kerosene or propane heater.

Funding for this two-year program comes from the State of Vermont’s Clean Energy Development Fund. Each new pellet stove replacement will decrease pollution, increase energy efficiency, and reduce homeowner’s fuel usage. Loans are available to pay the remainder of the installation cost and all homeowners will get a complimentary home check up to review maintenance, health and safety concerns.
